He is survived by his wife, Susan and his son, Devin Underwood. He is also survived by his siblings: Elaine Mastrangelo, Nancy Molloy, Denise Levy and her husband George, John Molloy and his partner Laurie Sullivan, Michael Molloy, David Molloy, Richard Molloy and his wife, Denise, his sister-in-law Kathy Molloy.

Peter was preceded in death by his father Tom and his mother Doris as well as his brother Tommy and his nephew Michael Mastrangelo. Because of Peter’s outgoing personality, he had a large circle of friends - too numerous to mention, but every one of them played a role in making his life full and happy. Prior to retirement, Peter worked as a mental health counselor at Bay Ridge Hospital in Lynn. In retirement, he loved puttering in his workshop in the cellar and never “met” a power tool he didn’t love. Peter had the best sense of humor. That was his gift. He could make something funny out of nothing. He added much to the lives of those who were lucky enough to know him and he will be missed. Visiting hours will be on Saturday, March 9th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Cuff McGinn Funeral Home 157 Maple Street, Lynn, MA (781) 599-3901.

Uncle Peter..two weeks have past yet this still feels surreal to me. Your presence is so missed, but the memories keep me going. Instead of tears your service was filled with smiles, laughs and stories from the past. It was a reflection of just how happy you made people. Your sense of humor and willingness to help others at the drop of a dime is and will remain unmatched. I don’t think you ever realized just how many people you impacted in such a positive way. Thank you for always being there for me as an Uncle, mentor and friend. I love and miss you so much. Nicky.

Peter was a kid at heart and that was a big part of his likability and charm. Anytime Peter showed up, our grandsons, Brayden and Camden, would go crazy over him and he loved entertaining them and making them laugh. He really was like another grandfather to them. Our family loved Peter and we will all miss him so much. Rest in peace Peter.

Peter was always smiling. He loved tools and gagdets almost as much as he loved my sister Susan. I miss his smile and warmth.

Peter Our Friend,

You will always be in our thoughts and surely within our hearts on a daily basis.

Your sense of humor, willingness to lend a helping hand, and above all, the character trait of not being judgmental of another is a lesson that was well appreciated.

We loved you when you were with us and we will love you forever.

"Rest in peace -we shall meet again"

Susan and family we are so sorry for your loss. Peter was a great man and true friend. We cherish that friendship. He always had a smile , a word of advice or funny anecdote to share. We were blessed to know him . Peter’s knowledge was vast from mechanical expertise to his knowledge of gardening. He had the gift to help others and he did. We enjoyed his visits and ever grateful for his help. Peter was kind, caring and he had a great sense of humor. He was a man of integrity.
It was always good to see him when he and Tom would drop by. Most of all Peter truly cared about his family and friends, He was there for you . His friendship meant the world to us. He was brave during his illness and he had Susan by his side. He was Toms best friend .
Peter was a great man. .
Please accept our deepest sympathy and our love.

Peter was much more then an Uncle to me. He was a mentor, a friend and close confidant whom I could always rely on. The advice and wisdom he bestowed upon me will continue to guide me for the remainder of my lifetime. I will never forget the many memories we made. Thank you for teaching me to never be afraid, and to always be honest with myself. That was one thing about Peter, he was defiantly loyal to his close friends and family. Being a man of many talents, he took great pride in rushing over, many times with his trusty tools in hand, when called to help fix whatever problem we had. He was always there as someone you could count on. I will miss you more than you will ever know, Unc. Much love and respect.. you’re Nephew, Nicky.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you take comfort that Peter is now in eternal peace and free of suffering, while always looking down upon you. I added you to my thoughts and prayers and asked others to as well. May you be blanketed in comfort at this time of sadness for you all.
